Help Request for odd Bluetooth behavior

#1 Postby rover » Sun Nov 19, 2017 7:07 am

I 'm attempting to install MX-KDE , on a Lenovo G50-45 ,and i'm experiencing an odd bluetooth behavior. I want to make clear that this happens not just on MX-KDE but on standard MX 64 bit as well , so i must assume that this has to do with the particular machine.

Both Blueman and Bluedevil show bluetooth as active but no matter what i've tried i cannot make the device discoverable .
If it is any help lsusb output is

That's a 2-yr old OS, a lot behind where bluetooth apps are now. You might try the MX-17 Beta 1 and see if your results are any different.
Production: 4.7.0-0.bpo.1-amd64, MX-15 RC1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 3.16-0-4-686-pae. MX-15, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
